Deck Builder inside the game

The deck builder is the section of the lobby where users can construct and customize decks or browse through their collection. It is possible to have several decks at once.

A deck must contain at least 50 scrolls and you can only have three of the same scroll, you can otherwise construct them however you like. Any combination of creatures, structures, spells and enchantments of any resource type can be used together. There doesn't seem to be an upper limit to the number of scrolls you can have in a deck, but it reaches at least 180 scrolls.

You can arrange your deck however you please in the lower half of the Deck Builder screen. You can also click the button in the bottom right corner of the Deck Builder to auto-arrange your deck (scrolls are grouped together and ordered by scroll name). The arrangement of the scrolls is saved when you save your deck.


All the scrolls you own, except those in your current deck, are in your library. You can also sort them by Name or Cost. To move scrolls to and from the library, simply drag and drop the scroll you want either into the pages of the library, or anywhere you like in the deck builder. It is possible to move a stack of up to three scrolls by clicking and holding the scroll for a second.

The scroll that is currently selected is displayed on the right side of the screen. The on-field appearance is shown underneath. You can watch the attack animation by clicking on the unit. Upgraded scrolls have their statistics displayed over the unit animation, so it isn't possible to see it.

Filtering options

You can filter the scrolls shown in your library by resource type by clicking the resource icons on the left. You can also use the text field above the library to apply more filters. The default behavior is to show only scrolls whose name contains the text entered in this field. However, it is also possible to use keywords to apply different filters which are described in the following list. If you use both a keyword and regular text, or if you use several keywords, then only scrolls that match all filters will be displayed.

Shows only scrolls whose number of copies you own equals <amount>.
For example, #:1 will show scrolls you only have one of.
Shows only creature and structure scrolls whose Attack is <attack>.
Shows only scrolls whose number of resources in their cost is <cost>. You cannot filter scrolls by resource type with this.
Shows only creature and structure scrolls whose Countdown is <countdown>.
Shows only scrolls whose rules text (including traits) contains <description>.
For example, d:ranged will filter all your cards to show only those that have "ranged" in the description text, including but not limited to those who have the Ranged attack trait.
Shows only scrolls whose cost includes resources whose name starts with <resource>. If <resource> contains commas, shows scrolls that match any of the strings between them, so it is possible to filter several resource types.
For example, res:d will only show Decay scrolls while f:g,o will show Growth and Order scrolls.
Shows only scrolls whose flavor text includes <flavor_text>.
Shows only creature and structure scrolls whose Health is <health>.
Shows only scrolls whose crafting tier (or level) is <tier>.
For example, l:1 will only show tier 1 (default) scrolls while l:3 will show tier 3 (best) scrolls.
Shows only scrolls whose rarity starts with <rarity>.
For example, r:c will show all common scrolls, r:u uncommon scrolls, and r:r rare scrolls.
Shows only scrolls from the set <set_number>.
For example, s:5 will only show the scrolls from the fifth set which is Rebellion.
Shows only scrolls whose type or subtype contains <type>.
For example, t:structure will only show structures and t:beast will show Beasts. Similarly, t:ll will show all spells and all structures whose subtype is Wall.

The filters for type, description, rarity, set, Attack, Countdown and Health are also available in the drop down menu next to the search field.

Additionally, for all keywords that accept numbers as parameter, you can add + or - at the end of it to make the deck builder show scrolls whose filtered value is greater or equal to the parameter, or lesser or equal to it respectively. For instance, #:4+ will show all scrolls you have four or more of, and s:5+ will show scrolls released in Rebellion (fifth set) or later. Similarly, c:5- will show all scrolls whose cost is five or less, and l:2- will show scrolls which are not upgraded to tier 3 yet.

Since keywords can be combined, it is also possible to specify a range by using a keyword twice. For instance, ap:1+ ap:3- will show scrolls whose attack points are between one and three.

Hitting Ctrl+Enter or clicking the "Add Scrolls" button adds one of each filtered scroll to the table. Similarly, Ctrl+Delete removes one of each filtered scroll. Note that filters are also applied to scrolls on the table, but contrary to the library they are still displayed, grayed out.
